Protractor has been a popular choice for writing end-to-end (E2E) browser tests over the past decade. However, Protractor is being removed from the Angular project as of Angular 15 due to a loss of dedicated developers and the rise of better testing frameworks. Based on this state of affairs, what should developers working with Protractor do, and what tool choices do developers have going forward?
All around us, we are seeing a growing trend of artificial intelligence (AI) being implemented in every aspect of our lives—from self-driving cars to intelligent chatbots. But what about the world of DevOps? Has AI come to play a role here as well? The growing role of AI in DevOps has unearthed some key benefits it can bring to many DevOps workflows.
Hi everyone! I am curious to learn which tools you are using to support your team when going through discovery/3 amigos sessions, formulation, and automation? Are you always able to automate your scenarios or finally end up testing some of them manually?
The approach to test via comparison of multiple API responses between production and test code versions is very effective and produces the required results, release over release. Improvements and changes, however, are needed to address changing needs. This is true for most if not all tech solutions; the economics principle ‘Law of Diminishing Marginal Utility’ also applies to software. A tech solution that excited stakeholders when first introduced could become stale very soon. A revamp or a new solution is needed to match evolving expectations.
Adopting a machine learning-driven self-healing technique in test automation can prevent flaky tests, reduce test failures, and save time on code maintenance. Self-healing is one of the essential factors for successfully performing continuous testing in the DevOps model.
Whether to use Cucumber and BDD (Behavior Driven Development) is an old topic and a lot has been shared regarding this already. However I believe many times it’s just the high level technical reasons that make it to the forefront of the argument on how effective it is, and I want to address the topic from a holistic point of view and not just technical.
